    For the 2015 200c some recommendations for 235/40R19 92H are: ContiProContact, Michelin Primacy MXM4, Pirelli P7 All Season, and Yokohama ADVAN Sport A/S...me personally, I'd stay away from Bridgestone unless you want to spend around $325 each for their Potenza REO50A tires. Good AS tires for our cars are quite expensive...

    I'm entertaining the thought of changing tire size slightly if that will be compatible with my rims with enough space. Maybe going to 245/40R 19. There seems to be a lot more options in that size.

    Hi; I just bought a 200c v6 3 weeks ago. I have about 600 miles on it and the bridgestone tires on my 17's are absolutely garbage. I never, ever considered buying new tires on a new car, however these tires have to go. Now, while I'm looking for new tires I think I'm going to purchase the 19" wheels that were optional on the 200c but didn't come with it. It would have been a $1000 option, a no-brainer, but I have to do it the hard way as the dealer wouldn't swap the wheels over from another car.

    The selection on the 19's are limited but I think I'll go with the Pirelli P7's as I have these on all my other cars. One of the best tires I ever rode on. I talked to the local dealer and he said that there are 3 options when it comes to 19" tires as per his computer:

    235/30R19; 235/35R19; 235/45R19

    That should open up the options but has anyone here actually fit the 45's in there without rubbing? Are the 30's to hard?

    Don't forget changing tire and wheel size will affect speedometer reading.
    Can't offer any advice on tire size.
    Maybe others can chime in.

    The OEM correct size for the 15+ 200 with 19's is 235/40 19, the dealer is probably giving you options of what he has in stock. When you use a non-stock size tire, as mentioned it will affect your speedometer and if you go with larger overall diameter tires, it will adversley affect your brakes, anything larger than 3% diameter of OEM is NOT recommended. So when you see vehicles with gigantic wheels and teeny weeny stock brakes... stay away cause they can't stop.

    Hi,

    I bough my 200S last September with those OEM Nexen tire and Im not impressed at all. Tires slip very easily...

    My wife have Elantra GT with same time but 16''. Feel better on the Elantra (maybe because the tires are thicker?)

    Just waiting to get some extra $$$ but buy new tires on the 200S. Probably Michelin Pilot Super Sport.

    So, I also have the a 15' w/ AWD and have 40,000 miles on it. I have done the rotation of the tires every other oil change and what have you. I do agree that the Nexen tires are pretty bad but I am not that tire savvy. I live near all the basic tire places, Mavis's and such. With the 19in tires, I find it is slim pickings. Every website I go on list the Michelin's Primicy as #1 and the Continental's just below it. Has anyone used either of these tires on their 200? 19in rimes, not 17's, there is a difference! Please let me know. Thank you

    Has anyone tried the Yokohama Advan Sport all seasons? I am looking for a decent tire but don't want to spend all that much as mine is a lease and will I be turning back in as I have had troubles with my dealership messing up my panoramic roof and it not closing properly now.. but thats a whole other headache.... the Nexens that came on the 19's have worn unevenly as most others have said, and I feel that when new they are slippery in the wet and don't offer very good dry traction for the upgraded wheel package..

    I have the Michelin's on my 13' 200, they came with them. They are by far the best tires I have ever had... period. Before I purchased my 15' 200, I had a 2013 200S V6. It had Goodyear LS2's. My wife had - and still has - a 2013 200 Limited V6 with the Michelin's. Night and day difference. When it snowed and my wife wasn't driving, I would take her car. I don't think you can get better wear, wet traction, dry traction and snow traction on an all season tire.

    The only downside is that they are very expensive, that said you do get what you pay for, and they indeed are that much better. I don't claim to be a tire expert but that's my experience anyway. Hope it helps.

    FWIW, Sumitomo and Falken are one company, making tires for each other under contract.

    Most Falkens, including the most-excellent G4 all-season, have Sumitomo equivalents that sell for about 10% less than the branded Falken version.

    The G4 is about as good as an all-season tire can be without going to dedicated winter tires.
